Understanding change is critical in this culture, but it's just as important to understand when change matters. Malcolm Gladwell (author of The Tipping Point and Blink) uses an interesting example. In the last 10 years golf clubs have improved dramatically. There's been a tidal wave of golf teaching videos, while shoes, gloves, and other accessories have made dramatic improvements.
However, golf scores have remained absolutely stable. Don't get caught playing the game where we pretend we're talking about progress, but we're really just talking about change. Real, positive change is about progress. It's about understanding the principles to help you make the changes that result in positive growth, advancement, and success.
Change and progress. Make sure they both happen together!
